A Book Review : Collective Amnesia by Koleka Putuma

Hey Guys!!!

I’m back with the Book Reviews. I was going to follow a schedule and say “watch out for book reviews every Sunday”, but I really do not know if I would be able to stick with the schedule. I can only try!

Remember I have a website dedicated solely to everything LITERARY – BOOK REVIEWS, BOOK EVENTS AND LITERARY LIFESTYLE of our favourite authors are creatives. So please do well to stop by THE AFRO READER and subscribe so you don’t miss out on any of the fun stuff!

Here’s a review of Collective Amnesia. I wouldn’t call it a review per se…but…Yeah Enjoy Still! 😊

MANDELA’S WORDS ON MARBLE

  • ImageImageImage·         Appearances matter – and remember to smile.
  • ·         As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
  • ·         I am the captain of my soul.
  • ·         Where you stand depends on where you sit.
  • ·         I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.
  • ·         The greatest glory in living lies not in ever falling, but in rising every time we fall.
  • ·         As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.
  • ·         Lead from the back and let others believe they are in front.
  • ·         One of the things I learned when I was negotiating was that until I changed my self, I could not change others.
  • ·         It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.
  • ·         Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.
  • ·         A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.
  • ·         It always seems impossible until it is done.
  • ·         After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
  • ·         Poverty is not an accident, life slavery and apartheid; it is manmade and can be removed by the actions of human beings.
  • ·         As I have said the first thing is to be honest with yourself.
  • ·         WE ASK OURSELVES, WHO AM I TO BE BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, HANDSOME, TALENTED AND FABULOUS? ACTUALLY, WHO ARE YOU NOT TO BE?
  • ·         Courage is not the absence of fear – it is inspiring others to move beyond it.
  • ·         Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
  • ·         ONCE A PERSON IS DETERMINED TO HELP THEMSELVES, THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN STOP THEM.
